The Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda is the newest section of Bahia’s sprawling resort complex near Punta Cana – one of the largest properties in the Dominican Republic. Featuring colonial-style architecture surrounded by manicured gardens, this smaller portion feels more private than the rest of the resort. All-inclusive rates cover lavish amenities like 24-hour room service, butler service, pillow menus and en suite mini bars.
Rooms feature whirlpool tubs and private terraces with country-style furnishings, canopy beds and separate seating areas. Rates include access to the gym and fitness classes including yoga.
The property has two pools and a large beach with drink service and unlimited access to non-motorized water sports. Complimentary fun in the sun includes kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, tennis, volleyball and access to the kids’ club featuring mini golf, beach Olympics and ice cream parties. Kids of all ages can make a splash at the adjoining Bávaro’s water park. For an additional fee, the concierge can arrange horseback riding, scuba diving, boating and fishing excursions.
Guests can choose from the hotel’s four restaurants with buffet and a la carte options as well as eight bars serving unlimited cocktails as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Live entertainment is performed nightly while guests can hit the dance floor at the disco or try their luck at the casino.
